Denver minor-league CHL team named Cutthroats, logo unveiled
The newest professional hockey team in town will be called the Denver Cutthroats.
The Central Hockey League team, and its logo, were formally introduced Thursday. The logo, designed by some of the same people who designed the Avalanche logo, features a greenback cutthroat trout ? the official state fish of Colorado ? swimming through a blue 'D'.
"It's a great looking logo that really incorporates a lot of what the state of Colorado is about," coach Derek Armstrong said. "Colorado has always been an active state with beautiful scenery and the logo focuses on that between the Cutthroat Trout, the mountains, the water, and the colors. There's no other logo like it in hockey."
The Denver-based company Adrenalin developing the team's logo and color scheme.
"We wanted to be sure the logo included elements and colors that depict the state of Colorado and the city of Denver," said Dan Price of Adrenalin. "The trout maintains a position between white mountain peaks and river rapids, and breaks through a forward moving 'D' ? representative of Denver's progressive population."
The cutthroat trout was named Colorado's state fish in 1994.
The team's official Facebook (facebook.com/DenverCutthroats) and Twitter (@DEN_Cutthroats) pages were also launched Thursday. The Cutthroats official website, http://www.denvercutthroats.com
, is under construction and will go live later this summer.
